A life of its own

My album is finally getting mastered. There was a bit of a false start when I paid £177 to a studio that apparently closed two years ago, but after a fine piece of investigationing (yes, wordpress, I know this is not a word but I like it and I am stubborn) I managed to track down the non-studio owner and reclaim my mastering money, excellent investigationing.

So now I have found a new, very enthusiastic and talented mastering person, who has told me that “You just need to release it now, set it free, and let it have a life of its’ own!”. I like this.

As I stand on the verge of doing so though, I wonder if this is how my parents felt when I left home and went off for a life of my own. Actually, I’m probably a bad example, I reckon my album is at least capable of boiling a potato (thanks to my mate Dave for teaching me ten years ago that you have to chop it up before putting it in the water, yes, seriously).

Whilst I sit at home, hoping that my album is making the most of its potential after years of nurturing, will it actually be eating kebabs and stealing shopping trolleys? Whilst I hope that it’s getting noticed by the people who matter (record companies) will it actually be drinking absinthe and spending its time trying to chat up the latest Pixie Lott album?

Will I get a phone call, “oh yeah, that money you gave me for promotional work, I spent it, on fish fingers mostly”.

If that’s the case, I may have to wait about 5 years before my album grows up and actually starts putting some effort in, and given the speed at which I produce music these days, I will probably be at least halfway through my next album by then.

Anyway, I’m sure I had a point when I started this. The album goes off for mastering next week and so we are creeping, veeeeeeery slowly towards it being finished. Hold yourselves back people (mum), not long to wait now.

Here’s another sneaky preview as I prepare to set my album free into the world.
